This paper develops a portfolio model for performance measurement and selection of investment securities for which there is no public market: investments such as venture capital investments, private placements, or real estate partnerships. The paper can be used as the basis of research to measure the risk/retum properties of privately-held securities, and such research can be used to develop portfolio measurement tools for these securities.
